melted crayons

My kids love to color and over the years we have collected quite a collection of crayons. In fact my kids both have containers that are bursting full with just about every color you can think of. It’s a bit overwhelming so I decided to take some of these crayons and make a fun Valentine’s Day craft with my kids.  This past weekend we made Melted Crayon hearts out of about 100 or so old and broken crayons.  It’s super easy to do and doesn’t cost much money at all. This craft can be done anytime of the year and you can use any type of mold that you like. Molds can be found at places like Walmart, Target, Hobby Lobby, Etc. Since we were making these for Valentine’s Day I chose to do a heart crayon. I picked up the mold below at Walmart for around $3.

Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees.

2. Unwrap your crayons, making sure you get all of the paper off. If your making a solid color crayon separate your colors into piles. If not you can just make one big pile.

3. Next break or cut the crayons into small pieces. The smaller the pieces the quicker they will melt.

4. Now place these crayons into the mold and fill up about 3/4, depending on how big of crayon you want. My mold was pretty big so we only filled it up 1/2 way.

5. Bake these crayons in the oven at 250 degrees for about 20 minutes.

6. After they are done, take them out of the oven and let cool completely before attempting to take them out of the molds. If you take them out to soon, they will break.

To make these Melted Crayon Hearts even better we turned them into Valentine’s Day Cards for all of Aubrey’s friends at Pre-school. I just took a few pieces of construction paper cut them in a small square. Hot glued the crayon to the center of the card and we wrote “You color My World” . Very cute and very simple!

 This is such a fun and easy activity to do with your kids. I plan on making another batch of these crayons to pass out as party favors for Aubrey’s  birthday party next month.

  1. I love this project!

  2. Love this! Such a great idea. I’m going to do this with my girls.

  3. Totally fun. We save our broken crayons solely for this purpose of making our own.

  4. These would have been PERFECT for my toddler’s class cards for Valentine’s day! I love this idea!!

  5. That is SUCH a cute idea!!

  6. I love this! I know you can do it, but had never tried it myself. Love the homemade Valentine, too!

  7. My kids love making these — and they definitely make adorable valentines!

  8. What a cool idea!

  9. Love. Perfect. Can’t wait to make them. Can you give me an idea about the heart “shell” that you used. I have no idea :) I thought that I would just put a sticker (in the shape of a heart) on the inside instead of gluing to a paper but only because I don’t have a glue gun :) Thanks for the dual idea.
